Beta version of PWMAngband 1.2.0 released

New PWMAngband 1.2.0 beta 1 released!

This will add convenience features, fix bugs and prepare for version 1.4 of MAngband.

Here's a list of changes since the last development release:

- Remove "change password" feature from character description screen
- Reduce the allowed minimum size of subterms to a fifth of the maximal size (16x4)
- Fix 32bit builds of the Windows client
- Allow looking and targeting with roguelike keyset
- Make maximum number of characters per account a server option

Client has been updated. Players must get the new client to play on beta 1 servers.

Note: I forgot to add the help files (manual.html and manual.pdf) to the beta 0 version and again forgot to compile them for the beta 1 version, so I added the ones for version 1.1.12 instead. I'll update the files for next beta.

Files updated: binaries and source code.
Files are available for download at the usual location:

Here's a little upgrade procedure:

1) Rename the /PWMAngband directory to /PWMAngband_old
2) Unzip the binaries into /PWMAngband directory
3) Replace \PWMAngband\lib\user by \PWMAngband_old\lib\user (this should copy the savefiles, preference files, logs and score file)
4) Replace (or better -- WinMerge) modified configuration files by the ones from /PWMAngband_old
4a) For the client (players), this means: the ini files, any .prf modified in /lib/customize, any .fon added in /lib/fonts
4b) For the server (admin), this means: the cfg file (you *could* in theory modify any game data file in /lib/gamedata, and especially constants.txt, but I advise against)
5) Archive (or delete) /PWMAngband_old
6) Restart your server (or client)
